install-info is available in /usr/sbin.  Either you should add this
directory to your path, or run the installation as root.

Please let me know if that fixes your problem.  If not, please provide
more details, such as what:

sh -c 'install-info --version | sed 1q | fgrep -s -v -i debian'; exit $?

No, POST_INSTALL is a hook for a planned GNU packaging system, that
hasn't been realized yet.

You can also run install-info manually.  The syntax is:

install-info --info-dir=/usr/local/info /usr/local/info/grub.info
install-info --info-dir=/usr/local/info /usr/local/info/multiboot.info

Or if you want even better results, then build and install your own
Debian package:

cd grub; dpkg-buildpackage -uc -B -rsudo

Good luck,
